  • We are so very sorry for your loss. We have wonderful and lasting memories of her as a neighbor and the many camping experiences. She was always laughing and spoke well of everyone. She was so very proud and loving of her children and next the grandchildren. I received a letter from her just a few months ago. I was so pleased and saved it. She will be missed by many. May she rest in peace

  • Wanda was my sister. She was a caring individual. Even though we lived a great physical distance from each other we always enjoyed our telephone conversations and the news we could share.

  • I loved aunt Wanda. I visited her several times in Mt Vernon. I am grateful to Kris for finding such a nice apt. and taking such good care of her. As she experienced setbacks, Kris stayed close and was such a steady and calming presence for Wanda. It wasn’t easy to watch her decline in the last year, but I could tell Kris was making the best choices she could for her mom. Being a daughter at the end is so very hard and I appreciate all Kris did.

  • Niki, I have a lot of fond memories of sitting around your kitchen table chatting with you and your mom when we were in high school. She was very generous, always quick to laugh, full of love and concern, and it was obvious the bond you had with her even as a teen. Her loss must be unfathomable.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family.

  • So sorry but I guess he needed more Angel’s and he got a great one.casey was very fond of her.and loved her.nickki ,kris , david keep ur head up shes ok now

  • Hi Niki, it’s been decades but I remember your mom as being funny, kind, and (perhaps most importantly for us) tolerant of the foolishness of the youth invading her home for Open House. I’m glad you had so much time with her in your life and that I got to meet her even briefly. – Chris
